English Toffee

Course Candy


  • 1 pound butter - has to be butter
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup nuts pecans finely chopped
  • 1 pound chocolate chips. I use 1/2 milk chocolate and 1/2 semi sweet


  • Combine the first four ingredients. Stirring constantly, cook over med to med-high heat until 285 degrees. It usually takes me around 20-25 minutes. Mixture should turn into a light brown/caramel look.
  • Pour into jelly roll pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let chocolate chips soften and then spread all over the toffee. Sprinkle with chopped pecans while chocolate is still warm. I also kinda press the pecans down into the chocolate a little.
  • Let cool until hard, then break into pieces.
  • DO NOT PUT IN THE FRIDGE TO COOL! It will ruin the look of the chocolate.
